Dismal new poll numbers for President Obama in Virginia and North Carolina underscore a growing danger to his 2012 re-election hopes — his job-approval ratings have dropped below 50 percent in all of the key states that he "flipped" from the Republicans in 2008.
"In states where Democrats don't win that often, this is not the year they're going to reverse the trend," said Republican pollster Glen Bolger, who works for North Carolina's GOP Senate front-runner, Thom Tillis. "It's hard to overcome the fundamentals with tactics, no matter how good a campaign you run."
"The country's off on the wrong track, and you pay a price for that when you're in charge," said Glen Bolger, a partner at the Republican polling firm Public Opinion Strategies in Alexandria.
